Insidesource Joins Forces with East Bay Allsteel/HNI Dealer Sam Clar Office Furniture


Insidesource is pleased to announce a merger with Sam Clar Office Furniture, an Allsteel furniture dealer headquartered in Concord, CA. The alliance diversifies Insidesource’s client portfolio and strengthens its offerings in the public sector and education markets.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be collaborating with the team at Sam Clar.” “In a universal time of business change and reinvention, it’s a fantastic opportunity for both companies to provide organizations and markets with a broader range of services and products,” said Insidesource CEO Dave Denny. “We share similar values, and the deal came together naturally through discussions of shared aspirations and ways to continue to evolve organizationally.” “The opportunity to join with Insidesource is exciting and provides benefits for our clients and our team members on day-one,” said Sam Clar President & CEO John Schwartz.

Sam Car will initially operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Insidesource. President and CEO John Schwartz will join the Insidesource leadership team as Chief Operating Officer, with an initial focus on successfully integrating Sam Clar into the Insidesource organization.

With the addition of Sam Clar, two showrooms in Concord and Sacramento will be added to Insidesource’s current portfolio of locations in San Carlos, CA (HQ), San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, New York, Norwalk, CT, and London.
